Browser supplied information

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you use our website. Like many web
sites we use ‘cookies’ to store information when you access our website. This information helps
us to track the behaviour of our customers to improve the shopping experience.

What are ‘Cookies’?

Cookies transfer through your web browser on to your computer’s hard drive to enable our
database systems to recognize your browser and help us to help you around our website. They are
plain text identifiers which are stored for the duration of your session, and if you register, to
let you stay logged in.

Cookies do not identify users personally but they do identify each user’s computer. We may
collect information about your computer including where available your IP address, operating system
and browser type for system administration and to collect information about how our customers use
this website.

This allows us to follow your navigation through our website and identify the web pages that you
visit. We may use such information to build statistics on users of our website.

Cookies pose no security threat and most web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies.

Your web browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies, how to have
the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether if you
so wish. Remember though, disabling cookies will prevent you from taking full advantage of
websites like ours so we recommend that you keep them on.

How we use your information

In addition to credit or debit card information we also collect data when you request our
newsletter, enter a competition, request a brochure, take part in a survey or make contact via one
of the electronic forms provided. This data is quite simply contact information.

  • We use this information to contact you, where necessary, about your order for goods.
  • We use this information to deliver goods to you that you have purchased from us.
  • We use this information to notify you about promotions on goods, services and other offers we
    think you may find valuable.

If you no longer wish us to contact you

You always have the option to opt out of any mailing or emailing list and any future use of your
personal information. At any stage should you decide you would rather not receive such
information from us we will be happy to remove your contact details from our mailing or emailing list.

We protect your information

All information stored or collected through our website is held on a secure server by our agent,
Redsky Studios whom we use as our data centre.

For your peace of mind, when you place an order or access your account information online, Redsky
Studios use secure server software (SSL) to encrypt the information you input. Encrypting
information makes it virtually impossible for anyone to access, and safe to send.

The SSL certificate can only be signed by trusted organisations and guarantees a high level of
security. Your credit or debit card details are processed and encrypted in this manner. This
encryption is shown by a padlock icon in your browser and the icon appears whenever card details
are being transmitted. When you submit card details the information will be encrypted before
leaving the computer and remain encrypted until it received by our secure payments provider.

You should protect your information too

It is also important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your account by using
passwords that contain both numbers and digits and which cannot easily be accessed by any party
who may have access to your computer.

You should make sure that you log off when you have finished using a website or computer and
you should never let a website or computer programme remember your password for you.

We do not share the information we receive

The information collected by us will never be sold, loaned or given to any third parties.

For the purpose of processing your order and card payment your information shall only be
passed to third parties where:

  • It is necessary for the performance of the services you have requested such as, Redsky
    Studios; or
  • Such third parties are the Police or any other regulatory or Government authority where
    we are legally required to do so; or
  • Such disclosure is to anyone to whom we transfer or may transfer our business and/or our
    rights and duties under our contract with you; or
  • You have given us your permission to share such information.

This policy does not apply to third parties.
